Welcome to the first of our Holiday Wishlist posts for 2014! Every day until Christmas, I'll be featuring a different jeweler here on the blog, highlighting some of my favorite pieces from their current collections. I've included a range of jewelry companies, from famous jewelry houses to new purveyors of affordable pieces, most of whom have had their designs worn by royal women. Please feel free to chime in with your favorite pieces from their catalogues in the comments, and enjoy a bit of holiday glitter!
Kate wears Annoushka earrings
Holiday Wishlist: Annoushka Jewellery
Annoushka, founded in 2009 by British jewelry designer (and Links of London co-founder) Annoushka Ducas, has quickly become a favorite brand of the Duchess of Cambridge. Both Kate and her sister Pippa have been photographed wearing pieces from Annoushka collections, including the baroque pearl drop earrings that Kate wears frequently. Colorful, classic, and fun, the pieces available at Annoushka would work well with everyday outfits and for special occasions. Here are five of my favorites from their current collections...
The Coronet Eternity Ring caught my eye immediately -- not only because it's lovely but also because it's so much like the magical wedding ring from The White Queen! Made of yellow gold and set with white sapphires, the ring can be worn either on its own or as part of a stack. (£350)
I absolutely love the starry look of black Drusy jewels, so this Brazilian black onyx and yellow gold Drusy Wrapped Pendant is right up my alley. Like a miniature universe full of constellations! (£495)
Annoushka's Dusty Diamonds collections are beyond gorgeous, and I'm really intrigued by the Dusty Diamonds Ear Pins. This one is made of rose gold and set with silver diamonds. I love innovative jewelry that still manages to look classic. (£995)
The Mythology collection at Annoushka features a series of unique and interesting charms, including this Pinecone Amulet. Carved out of ebony and set in gold with green and brown diamonds, this one would fit in well in the collections of either Kate or Princess Anne. It's also one of Annoushka's limited edition items, with only 24 in production. (£2,900)
Made of rose gold and thin slices of garnet, the Shard Cuff is a total showstopper. Love this creative approach to setting gemstones in jewelry! This one's also limited edition, with only 24 numbered pieces available. (£7,500)
